Researchers ( students) about narcissistic personality disorder, asked: how can such persons be helped to explore buddhism?
Many thanks.

Some interesting notes I found, like first here a reaction:


"One of the things I like best about Buddhism is that it has shown me how to do something useful with my narcissism.

Practice shows us how to bend the arc of our narcissism, how to press it beyond the stifling scope of self-concern and into the open air of deep and persistent awareness.

I'd assumed my vanity was just a problem to be solved. But I didn't see how the misguided compassion that animates it could be repurposed.

Enlightenment is narcissism extended".

I think in the Western Approach alot of Psych Dr.'s just take the analysis of the disorder and put a name/label on it.

(Not really treating or curing the "problem")

Yes indeed.
Glue a label on their nose and all turn in samenesses like clones, get the same therapy based on the label while the being its totality is missed.
This narrow minded approach is now a bit seen, buddhism is having an importance here.
